I love this old Truart sterling silver brooch. First, it has enamel. The color is forever. Second, like the other critters got away on the ark, these guys come in 2 by 2....inches and double file. There is no missing enamel. It looks like it was only applied to the non-smooth, rounded surfaces of the design and not the flat shiny frame. (Enamel craves a scored surface to adhere.) You wouldn't want to wear this brooch on a bold flashy plaid (well, you wouldn't ever want to wear a bold flashy plaid unless golfing), but look how great it will look on that little black dress! I think it's in excellent condition.
